CHEYDINHAL CASTLE COURTYARD


DESCRIPTION
I'm decorating the empty courtyards of the county castles. For now, I've done Cheydinhal.
It is cleaned it with TesEdit's auto-clean.
Featured:
  • two fountains
  • two sitting areas, one under a rumbling roses porch
  • a secluded area with a small shrine to Mara and a gorgeous statue depicting two elven lovers, commissioned by the Count in the loving memory of his late wife
  • flower beds and hedges

REQUIREMENTS
Shivering Isles: for the benches.

INCOMPATIBILITIES
I don't use "Better Cities", but I tried it along with "Cyrodiil Rebuild", which AFAIK is included in Better Cities, and they're NOT compatible, no matter the load order.

ISSUES
None I'm aware of. NPCs shouldn't walk into the flowerbeds because I edited the pathgrids, but I'm not an expert at that so I'm sorry if they're not perfect.

FUTURE UPDATES
I'll do other castle courtyards; I'll upload them on this very page as both separate and merged plugins.
I'm plannig Chorrol and Skingrad ATM; I'm not doing the others because:
  • Anvil is quite pretty even in vanilla game
  • Bruma is already covered in my other mod Bruma Greenhouses
  • Leyawiin and Bravil are already covered by two amazing mods I permanently keep in my load order, and I heartly recommend them to anyone: New City Leyawiin and New City Bravil. The former is also included in Better Cities, the latter isn't yet, but it is so good it deserves a one-time visit at least

CREDITS
  • The roses were taken from Emma's mod Red Rose Manor, with Emma's personal permission to use them in my own mods.
  • The lupin flowers (the tall red ones) were taken from samtheson's Grasses of Tamriel, with the author's personal permission.

Thank you, have fun :)
